Quieting the pump

Noisy pumps are the norm, except in the Space Shuttle, but that's just NASA.
Our 2013 Eagle 5er has a Shurflo and the owners manual for that pump says to not use rigid hose plumbing on either side. Well, ours was installedwith rigid pexright from the pump outlet side which transmitted the vibrations through the cabinets and walls. Today I cut that and put in a short loop of flexible hose and what a difference. So, if your pump seems noisy, check that out. Cheap fix.

a couple of pics

I had a few pex fittings so was able to cut the rigid hose just before it tee's to front and rear of the RV, about 8" from the pump pressure side. I left enough pex for a nipple. I had a pex .5" female fitting and put that on the end of a loop of flexible hose, maybe 16 or 18" long. Loop in photo is out of frame, but I marked with arrows. You'd want to make certain that the flexible hose isn't able to vibrate against a cabinet.
The other photo shows that the inlet side (suction side) does have flexible hose up to where they installed the winterizing valve etc.

I also took our pump off the wall and mounted it to the floor. That helped as well.
